Identification of steel products is a necessity, irrespective of the type and
shape of the steel product. How to mark steel as an identification or labelling tool will depend on the purpose of identification, the stage of the manufacturing process, and what the mark will have to endure.
Methods of identification are traditional labels, stencils, stamping, RFID,
etching, and laser.
Identification using permanent industrial grade paint remains one of the
most practical, and is the most cost effective way to permanently mark
all grades and shapes of steel.
